Not looking good the next few days. Thirties and forties for overnight lows, and highs in the fifties. Extended forecast doesn't even mention seventy until Sunday. Wind predictions range from ten to twenty-five mph depending on the day, so don't expect to be travelling too far on the water. The west side of the lake (Warroad area), has been producing spotty to good fishing. Tuesday (yesterday) saw a pretty decent bite up by Elm Point, but nothing spectacular. The shallow water over by Springsteel also had ok fish in the morning. The wind was an issue, I would be interested to hear if anyone is making it out to the the reefs. I suspect with the fairly consistent wind we've had, fish may be stacking up in those areas. Anyone know? As far as bait goes, I've been catching the majority of my fish on minnows, but you should also try leeches and crawlers. Bring a wide variety of weights so you can adjust to the wind. I would have everything from 1/2 oz up to 3 oz lead in the bag. If you fish the reefs in the wind, stop letting line out as soon as you feel the bottome, even an extra foot or two of line will cost you a lot of tackle. Good luck to ya.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON<p>[This message has been edited by walleyejon (edited 06-23-2004).]

I had my best luck with leeches and hammered copper spinner last weekend. 3-4' snell with red hook and red beed worked well also, again with leeches. <P>Good Luck<BR>Scott<p>[This message has been edited by phscotty (edited 06-23-2004).]

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
